Sugarland Could Be Named as Indy Lawsuit Defendant

The duo is showing up on notices for possible lawsuits after stage collapse.

Sugarland hasn’t been named in any of the slew of lawsuits filed after a stage collapsed, resulting in the deaths of seven fans, just before the duo was set to take the stage Aug. 13 at the Indiana State Fair. But an Indianapolis TV station reports that that could change soon.

WTHR says that Sugarland is showing up on notices on possible lawsuits. Among those notices: Best friends Jennifer Haskell and Alina Big Johny, in the front row that night, were both crushed, and Haskell's parents and sister have named “the band known as Sugarland, and its members, agents and employees” among the 15 “responsible parties.”

No comment yet from Sugarland’s camp.
